Trump threatens to withdraw from World Trade Organization



The president threatened to withdraw from the WTO if it doesn’t “shape up.”

President Donald Trump threatened in an interview offered to Bloomberg on Thursday that if the World Trade Organization doesn’t “shape up”, he would pull the United States.

In yet another instance of the president criticizing allies and international organizations, he complained about the international trading group’s treatment of the United States.

He told Bloomberg, “if they don’t shape up, I would withdraw from the WTO.”

CNBC reports that the president’s comments follow previous reports that Trump had told White House aides that he wanted to withdraw from the WTO.

However, some in his team had a different opinion, as Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross told CNBC in July that talk to withdraw from the WTO was “a little premature.”

“We’ve made no secret of our view that there are some reforms needed at the WTO,” Ross said.

He explained that the WTO could better “update [or] synchronize its activities.”

 

 


Trump amenaza con retirarse de la Organización Mundial del Comercio

 

El presidente amenazó con retirar a los Estados Unidos de la OMC si esta no “se adapta”.

El presidente Donald Trump amenazó en una entrevista ofrecida a Bloomberg el jueves que si la Organización Mundial de Comercio no “se adapta”, retiraría a los Estados Unidos.

En otra ocasión en que el presidente criticó a aliados y organizaciones internacionales, se quejó del trato que el grupo comercial internacional le dio a Estados Unidos.

Le dijo a Bloomberg, “si no toman forma, me retiraría de la OMC”.

La CNBC informa que los comentarios del presidente siguen informes previos de que Trump le había dicho a los ayudantes de la Casa Blanca que quería retirarse de la OMC.

Sin embargo, algunos en su equipo tenían una opinión diferente, ya que el secretario de Comercio, Wilbur Ross, dijo a CNBC en julio que la conversación para retirarse de la OMC era “un poco prematura”.

“No hemos ocultado nuestra opinión de que se necesitan algunas reformas en la OMC”, dijo Ross.

Explicó que la OMC podría “actualizar [o] sincronizar sus actividades”.
